Which Breath of the Wild Zelda hairstyle is your favorite?


They're all good

A fan came up with this alternate hairstyles for Zelda based on her Breath of the Wild character model, and I have to say, most of them are pretty good. It really got me thinking about how far Nintendo could go with Zelda, and the discussion before Breath was revealed about how Zelda could have been the protagonist, or that Link would be a woman this time around.

Now that they know people love the true open setup and the idea of free roaming to whatever dungeon/shrine they want, I think the next Zelda will use that same formula. Could we even see a soon-ish follow-up in the same vein as Majora on top of Ocarina in the same generation?

I'd put money on it, as Nintendo knows that they need to strike while the iron is hot. We didn't get one major Zelda on Wii U while it was briefly relevant (only at its death), so making up for it with two on Switch (they have plenty of time until the next generation) just makes sense.
